Just to clear things up...

This is Tommy's daughter... I created this blog as a voice for my father since he has no voice in the media. Anyhow I appreciate the publicity that we received in the NY Daily News today. Thanks Mr. Marzulli! However, there was a little error about the quote, "See me in a fight with a bear, pray for the bear." As I said I created the blog, its headings, layout, etc., and I posted this quote. The things that my father has said are followed by his initials, TG. The quote is from a Jay-Z song. My father never said it. It is actually what's called a metaphor. I interpret it as a person who is the epitome of strength, a person who will fight for what he believes in, with his back against the wall, no matter what. To me, my Dad is strength. He is the strongest man in the world. He carries my world on his back and he can do anything. He is my Daddy and my protector. For me the quote describes my Dad, especially right now when we are all in the fight of our lives for justice. It is not meant to be taken literally. I don't know whether or not John Marzulli and his FBI handlers, who helped him write the article, have ever been exposed to poetry. Again, it's not my quote, you'd have to ask Jay-Z... maybe he decodes it in his new book.

I continue to pray for enlightenment for all of those who so desperately need it,

I love reading the blog from time to time. The justice system is a relentless, grinding piece of machinery. We all have no choice, but to fight the power, to band together with our flesh and blood, and to stand up for what is right.
